cruz's tenure, i think it invites the idea that he might look a little like joe mccarthy. >> you know, the comparison there, neil, with the way that mccarthy connected somebody because they had an aclu lawyer 21 years before or the fact that they even had -- somehow he said -- never listed as a communist front, that's nonsense. may have defended communist because they will defend anyone's rights, that's what they do, but to make that sort of weird connection that somehow this guy is a comi, this is what this guy is doing. look at this because the iranians would like to see somebody who wasn't a super hawk coming in as defense secretary, that's somehow makes him the best friend they had over there. look at the look on his face, that sarcastic look he's got. he looks like mccarthy looked the way he does this thing. go ahead. your thoughts. >> well, you know, he -- >> i'm trying to document this. >> he's a harvard trained lawyer, went to princeton, debate champion and you can see him employing those tactics here.
